Ok - correct, permissable, or acceptable; meeting standards.

I still don’t understand why Todd has yet to get a drill, like Tony says “drill holes drill holes drill holes”. Even if they could not use it for the whole year, they could turn around and least It to other calm owners or other mining teams.

I'm not familiar with the regulations where Toad is but in NC you need to be licensed with the state to operate a drill rig. A small track mounted geoprobe rig goes for $50 - $100 K. I'm guessing that since Toad couldn't get a workable trommel at Quartz Creek, he probably couldn't handle a drill rig.

I don't doubt that you need to be licensed to operate one. That's why we've seen on a few occasions them hiring a guy to come in and drill test holes.

TBH I think not drilling test holes is for TV. On the last "Behind the Scenes" episode where they had Tony Beets on he showed how he did test holes with his chart and map of drill holes showing how much gold came out of each hole. Using that he could pretty reliable predict how much gold they would get out of a cut. This goes against the Discovery formula of "Will Toad get 1000 ounces?!?! Tune in next week for toad possibly hitting the mother load or possibly going bust!" Having it laid out that we'll get X amount of gold from this land deflates all the drama Discovery tries to inject into the series.

Think of the drill more in these terms, if someone took an operator, a laborer and a gold recovery specialist, manned the drill with those three people, they could drill 5 holes a day (which might be low) at 500usd per hole for 4 days a week. That would be 20 holes a week and 10k gross and/or 40k a month for 4 months or 160k per season. And Todd still has yet to get one to use for the first couple weeks on his own claim.
